I'm looking for the "outward" name for a relationship between two items. One is a request item, the other is the item created in response.

Other examples of are:

Name - Outward Name - Inward Name
Depend - "is required for" - "depends on"
Duplicate - "is duplicated by" - "duplicates"
Subtask - "parent for" - "subtask of"

The one I'm looking for would be:
Response - "????" - "response to"

Looking for something a little better than "Request" or "Inquiry".

1 Answer 1

  • answered by (for a definitive response)
  • addressed by (for a less definitive response)
  • responded to by (awkward, but probably the least ambiguous option)
  • I think "addressed by" fits the system quite well. I'm surprised I didn't think of it. Thank you.
